A strong network and a powerful resume or CV will only get you the interview. It's up to you to knock it out of the park during the interview in order to get the offer.
Over the course of my professional career, I have been interviewed for jobs dozens of times and have interviewed others for jobs hundreds of times. As a coach, I interact constantly with HR professionals, recruiters and hiring managers. Interviewing is an element of every coaching program I offer.
A successful interview happens from preparation. To me, this starts with having a strong sense of yourself personally and professionally. I help my clients create strong brands for themselves.
A brand is simply the feeling or thought someone has when they think of a product or service. In this case, it's you. You want to be able to convey to a potential employer why you are absolutely, without a doubt, the ONLY candidate they should consider, that NO ONE else has your combination of experience and wisdom to bring to a new job. Isn't that true? No one else on the planet has had the same experiences as you have had and been able to combine them with your professional knowledge and education as well as wisdom gained from past jobs or school projects.
I help you create a compelling message to share during the interview process, conveying your own professional unique values (or sales) proposition. You and I will prepare you to answer the various "gotcha" questions and ones designed to evaluate how quickly you can think on your feet. I'll analyze the way you come across during an interview and provide you with solid, actionable guidance on improving yourself in the interview.
